City signs and lights : a policy study : prepared for the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by Ashley/Myer/Smith( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1977 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Signs/Lights/Boston, a project investigating environmental information systems in urban areas, was undertaken as the first step in a process of planning and controlling signs and lights for purposes of improving the flow of information in the city. This resulting report takes the city as it is and develops explicit means for revealing its form, functions, and meanings more effectively. Recommendations are limited to public policy for the design and control of a small but critical set of information sources in the environment: outdoor signs, lights, and other informational devices. It does not probe deeply into the cultural symbolism of signs and lights but rather analyzes their more immediate functions as environmental information systems. It asks what are the problems and potentials of public and private signs and lights, suggests a set of criteria for improving their performance, recommends an administrative process and framework for dealing with them as an interrelated set, and develops a set of policies and a program to implement the criteria. Although Boston, Massachusetts, served as the research and demonstration area, the operating principles and most of the designs suggested in the report should be useful to other cities with similar problems and opportunities.
